“Family Tree”

some people have their minds
on how life should go


what happens when things
don’t go as planned
and a grandfather
becomes a father again

it messes with the mind
that was set
on how things should go


I know a man
who became a grandfather
and shortly after
became a father

he can’t understand it
so he drinks
he can’t comprehend it
so he drinks
he can’t get away from it
so he drinks

but it will never change
the timing of his choices
it’ll never change
the order of birth

darkness may have many chains
to hold people in hell
but there’s always one Key
that’ll set them all free
